Hayden Panettiere Steps Into Ukraine Political Rally

A million citizens rally in Ukraine, calling for closer ties with the West, and you won't believe who's in the middle of this revolution.

It's Hayden Panettierre. Her fiancé is the six-foot-seven boxer Wladimir Klitschko, who is from Ukraine. The star of the TV show Nashville is five feet tall.

Klitschko's brother is a leader of the anti-government movement and is the reigning world heavyweight boxing champ.

Panettiere addressed the masses, saying, "There's a movement here and you have a chance to make things right, to make things just. You have a right to a democracy."

This isn't the first time that Panettiere has waded into international politics. She's been outspoken in her opposition to the fishing of whales and dolphins in Japan.

Back in Ukraine, a statue of Lenin was ripped from it's base.
